Ballad of a Baker. Joe Brown he was a baker man, A baker man was Joe; He ne'er was known to want for aught, And yet he kneaded dough. And he was rugged, hearty, to?, And had a long life leased, And all because he rose up with His early rising yeast. To never cheat his customers This man was early taught, And yet his loaves were always light, His pie crust rather short. And he was generous hearted.'too, And kind unto the needy, And neat and tasty in his dress. Although his cakes were seedy. With him none dared to bandy jokes Whene'er he sought the marts, For well they knew his repartees Were sharper than his tarts. And when I say his skill was great In getting up a muffin, His pastry filled the mouths of all, And needs no further puffin. 'Tis said he was a temperance man, If so I can't tell why He mixed with wheat, and.com meal, too, A trifle of the rye. When age at last o'ertook the man, His form grew bent and sore, And, like the cake he used to bake, His head was frosted o'er. And ...

_^tatmtott^gjt^ttator. Tuesday, February 7, 1871. Better Times Coming. No. 1 white wheat has been selling for some days past, in Richmond, at $2.00 per bushel, and prime red at $1.90. This ought to make flour worth there from $9.50 to $10.00 per barrel, or $8 to $9 here. We see from the Dispatch of the 3rd inst., that extra flour is quoted in Richmond, at $8.25 and family $9.50 to $10. The Mark Lane (London) Express—the most reliable of all the reporters of the condition of the breadstuff market, says, that England aloue will require from foreign countries SEV ENTY-TWO MILLIONS of bushels of wheat or its equivalent in flour. The same paper says, "but little is expected from either Ger many or Russia, and America is looked to for the bulk of what is needed." France and Prussia are almost stripped of their u_ual stocks of grain, and must draw on foreign countries for their supplies. As Rus sia cannot furnish them, they also will have to look to America. We incline to the opinion that ...

Tke Bird's-Eighti Meeting. What birds pecked the cherries on Barnaby's tree? "I peck_d them for one," said a bold Ghickadee. "And so did I peck them," said a Robin Red breast; "And what _ more, the cherries I pecked were his best,, "Didn't he have some red flannel one day, Put up in the tree just to scare me away ? But I'm not afraid of red flannel a bit." "And I'm not afraid 1" said a little Tomtit. "Didn't he aim with an old rusty gun At me?" said a Sparrow. "Oh, wasn't it fun! He meant to affright me ; but I didn't care . I juat chirruped out to him, "shoot if you dare!"

Tuesday, February 14, 18717 The Appropriate Office and Functions of Railroads. In this day of squabbling and controversy a bout Railroads, the public and the press seem, in a great measure, to have lost sight of the proper purposes for which these great high ways are established. Every town and city seems to think that railways are built to carry freight and merchandise to their doors, so as to enlarge the trade of their particular localities. In our judgment this idea is entirely erroneous. Railways were never designed to divert trade from its natural outlets. Nothing could be more unwise than to endeavor to force trade in to channels into which God and Nature never designed that it should flow. And nothing could be more unjust than by a system of coer cion to compel production to submit to onerous taxation in order that it should pass through a particular town, or be shipped from a particu lar port. Trade should be free. It should go where it could command the best market.— Farmer...

An itinerant preacher thus describes the rough trip ho had in preaching to the boys: I talked of sin, and they listened in awe As I told of its cause and governing law In mo3t effective manner; And one from out of the gathered throng Cried out in pathos deep and strong, "That's what's the matter with Hannah 1" I looked around for the troubled dame And called her out by her given name, (For I did not know the other;) And said, with a sigh which the crowd could hear, "Woman, called Hannah, if thou art near, Approach thy Christian brother." My hearers laughed at my earnest cry, And "Put over his eye!" Cried some in mocking fashion ; But I paid no heed to the scoffing few — "Hannah, my sister, I call for you In love —not wrath or passion. "Come, then, to the altar, oh, child of woe!" Then spoke another, "Not any for Joe!" I wondered at him, slightly, And said, "Oh, Joseph, the flesh is weak ! It makes me tremble to hear you speak Of holy things so lightly." Then, up from the heathen cam...

Tuesday, March 7, 1871. Bribery and Corruption. The Legislative Committee, who have been for some days examining witnesses to ascertain whether any members of the Legislature have accepted bribes for their votes upon the Rail road bills which have excited so much interest recently, have at last succeeded in eliciting tes timony which establishes the fact that some were bribed. The testimony of N. J. Hinton, assistant Secretary of the Constitutional Con vention, before the Committee on Friday last shows that he was engaged by the notorious Radical, Col. Jno. W. Jenkins, (who, it will be remembered, accompanied Wells during the canvass for Governor, and made a speech here at the same time Wells did) to bribe members. By the agreement between Jenkins aud Hin ton, by the testimony of Hinton, the latter was to receive $550 for each vote he secured. Hin ton offered bribes to a number of colored mem bers to vote for the bill in the interest of the Pennsylvania Central Company. W. H. An dre...

gtottott .jpttator. Tuesday, March 14, 1871. Election Day. The vote of this county on the question of Railroad subscription will be taken again on next Saturday, the 18th inst. The arguments in favor of it have been fully and strongly pre sented through the columns of the press of this place, and the voters ought to be prepared to vote upon it. We suppose that many who appreciate the importance of the construction of these roads will vote against the subscription under the confident expecta tion that they will be built even though the subscription of this county be defeated. This is a dangerous experiment, and such hopes may prove delusive. . As we have endeavored, on former occasions, to demonstrate, nothing can be lost by the sub scription, as it will be made, if made at all, upon the condition that the money subscribed be expended within the county, and this sub scription would ensure the expenditure within the county, in the construction of these roads, of more than a million of...

Au Idyl of the Period. IN TWO PAKTS. I. "Come right in! How are you, Fred ? Find a chair and have a light." "Well, old boy, recovered yet From the Mather's jam last night?" ''Didn't dance, the German's old." Didn't you? I had to lead- Awful bore; but where were you?" "Sat it out with Mollie Meade; Jolly little girl she is— Said she didn't care to dance, I'd rather have a quiet chat- Then she gave me such a glance; So, when you had cleared the room And had captured all the chairs, Having nowhere else, we two, We two took possession of the stairs; I was on the lower step, Mollie on the next above; Gave me her boquet to hold— Asked me to draw off her glove. Then, of course, I squeezed her hand, Talked about my wasted life, Said my sole salvation must Be a true and gentle wife, Then, you know, I used my eyes- She believed me every word; Almost said she loved me—Jove! Such a voice I never heard— Gave me some symbolic flower, Had a meaning, oh ! so sweet; Don't know what it is, I'm sure— ...
